‘Avengers: Endgame’ Almost Gave Us Thor Vs. Thor

Avengers: Endgame

*SPOILERS*

The Russo Brothers were faced with one of the hardest challenges in movie directing history, pulling off a satisfying ending to one of the longest running franchises in cinema. While ‘Avengers: Endgame’ offered up many surprises, some expected, others not. One fan-favorite moment in the film was watching Captain America square off against his younger self, inside Avengers Tower.

The Russo Brothers had planned for another of our heroes to battle a younger version of themselves.. While in Asgard, there was a story board that suggested Thor face the younger version of himself. We all know this would have for sure brought the laughs and fireworks. The Russo’s decided Thors arc would be better suited by having an emotional interaction with his mother.

Anthony Russo says, “it overly complicated (the plot).”

“I think there, we also deferred to the storyline between Thor and his mother. (It) was so resonant, that we really wanted to run… That was really more a part of Thor’s journey and repair than confronting his former self. So that’s really what happened there, why we went with that.”

Anthony Russo went on the say, they all liked the idea of, “Cap vs Cap better.” It sounds like they felt it more important to repair Thor’s onset depression, that    continued over from ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ into Endgame. Though it would have been cool to see the “Lebowski God of Thunder” face off against his more.. “Fit” self. It definitely made more sense to have Thor return to his confident self, before going into the final battle against Thanos.

“Thor had been on a mission of vengeance in the last movie, so we couldn’t put him on that. What is the end result of a guy who has lost so much and just blatantly failed? We wondered, ‘Okay, well, what if he does become a sort of depressive alcoholic?’ And the weight gain was just part and parcel of that state of mind.” – Christopher Markus to IndieWire

“We leave him in that state at the end of the movie. Even though he’s emotionally resolved. We fix his problem, and it’s not his weight. I know some people are sensitive about some of the humor that comes from it, which I understand. But our issue that we wanted him to deal with was his emotional state that his mom addresses. And I think he is the ideal Thor at the end of the movie, and he’s carrying some weight.” – Christopher Markus to IndieWire

Matt Reeves Drops First Look | Batsuit Test From ‘The Batman’

Published

Fans have been waiting weeks since filming began for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman,’ for a quick glance at the new batsuit. Now we have our first official look at what Robert Pattinson will look like dawning the cape and cowl of the dark knight. We also get our first listen at the musical tone we can expect from the upcoming film, which to no surprise, is dark and ominous. Pattinson would like to see Batman receive an R-Rating saying that it would free his character up to do more:

“The only thing that’s more complicated is the rating. As soon as you make something an R-rated movie, you’re freed up to do so much stuff. In terms of the character itself, I want to push it as far as it possibly can go. And I think Matt Reeves does as well. You can do crazy stuff with that part.”

Marvel Studios has given us our first look at its upcoming Disney + shows, which include, ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, ‘WandaVision’ and a quick tease of ‘Loki.’ 

‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ is set to take place after the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ and picks up with (Anthony Mackie’s) Sam Wilson who is now the new “Captain America.” The show will center around new global adventures with Sam and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan.)

‘WandaVision’ will also make its debut this fall, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and the Vision. The 1950s-inspired series will have Wanda and Vision trying to live a “Normal” life. But things aren’t always what they seem. The latest trailer shows the two heroes jumping in and out of different timelines. The show has been described as comedic and dark.

Little is known about the upcoming ‘Loki’ series, as the show isn’t set to air until 2021. We do know, the show will also take place after the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ How Loki survived having his neck broken by the mad titan, Thanos, has yet to be revealed. Apparently the God of Mischief had one more trick up his sleeve. The latest teaser has Loki promising, “I’m going to burn this place to the ground.”
